Ali Stunt (CEO PCA) MP Eric Ollerenshaw (Group Secretary) and Baroness Morgan (Vice Chair) at November’s APPG meetingPancreatic Cancer Action is one of the APPG PC stakeholders and through this group we aim to raise the profile of pancreatic cancer within Parliament; to raise the issues of relevance with government and policy makers and influence policy and improve life for pancreatic cancer patients and survivors.

Through this vehicle, we at Pancreatic Cancer Action would  like the government to act on the following:
  • Reduce the number of patients being diagnosed as an emergency from 50% to 33% by 2018
  • Increase the level of research funding for pancreatic cancer from £5 million per annum to £20 million per annum by 2015
  • Ensure that ALL pancreatic cancer patients are seen by a pancreatic cancer specialist upon diagnosis (sadly this doesn’t always happen!)

All MPs, Peers and political researchers can attend the APPG PC meetings. Please encourage your MP to come along and support this. Click here for tips on how to do this.
